Once the purview of all proper English gentlemen from Victorian days through the present, the bowler looks equally wonderful on a woman wanting to keep her ears warm or anyone wanting to add some dashing elegance to their winter wardrobe.

Tilt it to the side, wear it straight on; go for business-like or Babylon Berlin, however you wear it (see size notes below) you are sure to look wonderful, just as John Steed did in every single episode of the 1960’s classic that inspired this hat.“Mrs. Peel, we’re needed….”

SOME THOUGHTS ON SIZES: The larger the size the more like a bowler or brimmed cloche the hat looks. Choose your size based on what look you are going for. A hat with a smaller measurement than your head looks like a beanie with a brim, the same size or a little larger than your head measurement looks like a bowler, much larger looks like a bowler or brimmed cloche.
